In Home Maternity Photosession

In-home lifestyle sessions are truly my favourite. Our homes reflect our personalities and are filled with objects dear to our heart. What other place in the world could be better to create meaningful lifelong memories?

Vanessa and Roger wanted to document this magical period in their lives in their beloved home. I can’t wait come back to their cozy nest to meet the little princess <3

Boho Garden Baby Shower

The baby shower for stunning Marcia Leone, founder of NOT SO MUMSY was nothing short of magic. Marcia’s expecting her second baby in just a few weeks and wanted to have an intimate yet beautiful celebration with her closest girlfriends. The party was decorated and styled as a garden boho party by one of the best Sydney stylists and event planners – Jo Kalivas Events and Styling.

Every detail was a treat for the eyes. From the champagne bottles bathing in a golden bath of ice to the gently torched meringue which sit upon the soft velvety sponge below. The beauty didn’t stop at the arrangement, Sydney weather gifted us a warm and sunny day and Marcia’s backyard was an oasis of glimmering sunlight and luscious greenery. Golden and white decor created a worry free and whimsical atmosphere suited for such a joyous event. Guests could make themselves comfortable by sinking into one of many delicately appointed pillows; sipping the ice cold, refreshing juice from a young coconut.

Here is a list of amazing Sydney vendors who brought this boho garden party to life: Delicious grazing table was put together by The Gazing Co. Everyone loved drinking out of the cutest floral coconuts by Kayterco. The cake was created by Martie from Sweet Treats by Martie. Gold acrylic Hey Baby and cake topper were provided by Letters by LouLou and custom HeyBaby lightbox plate by Name It Custom Decor. Macrame backdrop and rug were hired from The Event Stylist. Confetti balloons and assorted partyware by DIYstyle. Glassware and assorted partyware The Party People Shop. Gold champagne bucket and trays by Prop My Party. White rattan stool by The Treasure Room.

Winter Mood Family Session in Centennial Park

Centennial park is always gorgeous, but especially on one of those winter days, when the air is crisp, the sky is blue and the sunset is golden and quiet.

This little gorgeous family was so much fun to photograph! Olivia is a little angel. She was smiling all the time and I think we really clicked :) She loves dogs, birds and horses and there were plenty of animals to watch in Centennial park.

What can I say, beautiful people combined with a beautiful location is a winning combination!

 

Cozy Winter Session in Sydney

This lifestyle session is all about coziness. The day of the session was Maria’s 31st birthday and we were planning a family session in the golden leaves of Centennial park. However, it happened to be one of those terrible Sydney winter days – blowing a gale with cold, miserable rain. I couldn’t let our plans completely fail on such a special day, so I suggested we shoot on site at Maria’s house and make a session in a place where her family spend most of their time.
I must say, lifestyle sessions at your home are very special. This the only place where you feel completely relaxed and your true self. The place in its own tells the whole story about you and your family – every detail has meaning and a reason to be there.
At first thought it could seem like an unexciting place to have photoshoot, yet years later when you might move houses, cities or even countries and your kids grow up, it will be a magical feeling to return to those times, and relive those moments when you were young and your children were small; to see what your house looked like, to feel again what you felt back then and ponder on how time flies and reflect on what you’ve achieved and how much you’ve changed since.

Sunshine in My Pocket

The most wonderful part of my job as a professional photographer is not actually taking pictures of people, it is listening to their stories. Every single person I’ve met in my life taught me something. It is truly important for me to connect with a person and  hope that their story of life, love, dreams, struggles and success speaks through pictures. Please don’t ever be afraid to open up and let others fall in love with you.

This family traveled the world and Australia in a camper van. They’ve been searching for a place they could call home for many years before they found it in Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

 

 

Childhood Friends

Noosa main beach is a magical setting for any photoshoot. I feel warm and fuzzy and a little bit sad looking at these photos. They make miss my old friends and worry-free times I long for in adulthood.
